Canadians interested in enjoying Black Friday deals had to cross the border to the U.S. Data from Statistics Canada shows that 4.2 million people crossed the border in 2011. However, this no longer has to be the case as many local retailers have seen the opportunity and are cashing on it.
Black Friday, which comes a day after the Thanksgiving holiday in America, attracts many Canadian shoppers. The day is called Black Friday because it’s when retailers see profits or black ink on their balance sheets. It marks the start of the Christmas season, albeit unofficially.
Below we’ve gathered all the major Canadian retailers who are offering Black Friday deals.
